Jacob Witzling and Sara Underwood are designing and building an incredible collection of cabins in a Pacific Northwest rainforest—and they recently unveiled their latest dwelling. It’s called the Diamond Cabin—and it draws inspiration from geometry and fairy tales.
“The geometry is realized in the hexagonal pyramid roof and 16 triangular and trapezoidal skylights,” Witzling says. “Using salvaged decades-old, hand-split cedar shakes as siding and draping the entire cabin in moss brings the fairy-tale element to our work.”
With a footprint of 93 square feet, the cabin is shaped like a hexagon with six-foot sides. From the floors, the walls flare outwards at a 30-degree angle until they are 4 feet high.
